.c. s title game since the 2000 series. graham watson of yahoo! sports acknowledges that they face a challenge. >> florida state crushed a ever rated opponent it played. it will be a basic task for duke to take them down. duke has nothing to be ashamed about. i think it will be a close game. duke hung with everybody. it has gone past what many people thought they could do. it's defied the odds and to count them out would be a bad idea. i think they'll give florida state a game, all it can. i don't think at this point there's any team in the country that is better than florida state. >> ohio will lock up a b.c. s title game berth with a victory over michigan in the big eye game. for coach it is about the here and now. >> the finals are high stakes, there's a lot of things going on, a busy week, i like the maturity of the team. you lean on the coaches and players. >> a lot of players are older. it is their system. you get a feel for braxton miller in terms of what he did last year, and a feel or how carlos hyde played and devon smith, and others that played against us. it gives us so
